Background: Multiple myeloma with giant multinucleated plasma cells is a very rare entity and mostly reported cases are dated. This plasma cell morphology has been observed after monoclonal antibody treatments, such as daratumumab, and patients have experienced a worse prognosis with partial responses and a high rate of relapse. Results: Here, we showed a newly diagnosed multiple myeloma with giant plasma cells with multiple (up to 13) immature nuclei who achieved a complete remission after a first line therapy and underwent to autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, as per international guidelines.

Abstract

Background: Multiple myeloma with giant multinucleated plasma cells is a very rare entity and mostly reported cases are dated. This plasma cell morphology has been observed after monoclonal antibody treatments, such as daratumumab, and patients have experienced a worse prognosis with partial responses and a high rate of relapse. Results: Here, we showed a newly diagnosed multiple myeloma with giant plasma cells with multiple (up to 13) immature nuclei who achieved a complete remission after a first line therapy and underwent to autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, as per international guidelines.
